On-street parking is difficult and can become expensive very quickly in Madrid. Look at paying for far more secure and convenient underground parking lots, which are located all across the city and close to major attractions. These parking lots will provide you with a greater peace of mind than street parking, as it is common for bumps and scratches to occur on the street as drivers fight for space in the narrow parking spaces.
